As Election Day approaches in the Maryland, a candidate for Montgomery County Executive and one for Governor of Maryland join us for the Politics Hour.
After surviving a violent crime, local victims and their families still face many challenges. Victims may not fully understand their rights in legal and criminal proceedings, or be aware of the resources available to them. In particular, when a perpetrator is a repeat offender, it can be devastating for their victims to know the criminal justice system has failed. We speak with an advocate from a victim services organization, as well as the mother of a murder victim about the aftermath of violent crime.
